Efficient Aisle Layouts for Businesses Utilizing Used Drive in Rack Systems
If you use drive in rack systems in your warehouse and are looking to optimize your aisle layout, there are several factors to consider. For example, you’ll want to consider your standard workflow and the types of materials you store. If forklift operators frequently need to traverse the warehouse space to retrieve different items, the ideal layout will allow them to do this efficiently. Furthermore, the space you have available plays an important part in determining the best layout, as your aisles will need to have enough room for forklifts to maneuver without the risk of impacting racks when driving through or backing out.
Although there is no one-size-fits-all solution, many businesses choose the fishbone aisle design, which has diagonal aisles that intersect. This allows employees to easily move between different points in the warehouse and provides excellent storage density, allowing you to maintain wide aisles.
